Europe has Aarhus in its sights as European Capital of Culture in 2017. The city’s creative professions are enjoying the limelight, including a wide range of firms of architects large and small.
In this theme, you will find examples from the urban developer Rune Kilden of the fantastic changes taking place in Aarhus Docklands.
The theme also offers an interview with Jørgen Bach, a partner at Arkitema Architects. He is also chairman of The Architecture Project – a business cluster which is behind, for example, Rising Architecture Week. The architecture biennale is taking place on 11-15 September 2017 in Aarhus.
Rising Architecture Week is organising events in the city and a conference at Godsbanen, where "card houses" several metres high made from Troldtekt acoustic panels provide a backdrop to discussions about architecture as a solution to tomorrow’s challenges.
